>>> it's november 1st on "the cycle." it's been exactly 67 hours since superstorm sandy make landfall along the jersey shore. three days later, incredible signs of recovery. even more signs there's a long road ahead. >> i'm stove carneve kornacki. where is the money going to come from? >>> the storm has passed and both candidates are back on the trail. five days to go and the stakes couldn't be higher. >>> time toure. technology's come a long way since tim russert famously wrote florida, florida, florida. but what hasn't changed is the path to victory, making the sunshine state our state of the day. >> all that plus the image emblematic of what barack obama wanted from his presidency. it took four years and an act of god to get it. it's thursday and you're in "the cycle." >>> it's another day of slow progress as nearly two dozen states pick up the pieces from sandy. the death toll now stands at more than 80. also rising is the costs. now estimated at north of $60 billion. that's not hard to consider when you look at the incredible damage especially along the new jersey coastl
it inappropriately. they're going to blame sandy, chris christie paul ryan. they're going to blame voters for being dumb and voting against their interests. i think and i've said this president obama because mitt romney was the w candidate at the wrong time. i think he would have won in 2008. he needed a time machine. a bad year to be the guy running against universal health care when you crafted a similar piece of legislation in massachusetts. running on a message of business and success and capitalism when that's demonized in the class war. it was just the wrong fit for this year. >> steve? >> yeah. you know guys i mean, this was obviously a momentous win for obama and the democrats and a lot to dissect in terms of demographics and where politics in this country go from here and something to be said for the idea that obama in the campaign was in lot of people appreciated. political scientists who sort of step away from the day-to-day campaigning and look at the structural factors said obama's is50% for basically this entire year. unemployment rate was high but it was slowly c
is it 78-8 people think he's done a good job on hurricane sandy. it's tough with that type of week it's just -- it gets enough. now i think the only hope for the romney folks is let's say this ad blitz stimulates their base and they come out in pennsylvania in numbers that they were not likely to come out in before. and the obama base still remains over confident or lethargic, et cetera. i don't think that's going to happen. i think ofa still has an excellent ground operation. i've been going around to ofa staging places the last couple of days. and the ofa people are fired up. there hasn't been that much activity visible as of yet but in the last four days they can do a lot. they got a very, very good organization. so i think the odds are very difficult for romney here. >> governor, you just mentioned hurricane sandy. i want you to quickly weigh in on president obama and chris christie bromance. robert mourdock said christie needs to redeclare for romney or take the blame for the next four years. do they need to reto their vow? >> if i were the romney campaign and believe me i'm not
of sandy, still a lot of people in the new york area and new jersey area needing help and remarkably one of the most effective a ivive organiza out of occupy wall street is occupy sandy and phenomenal at providing residents with hot meals, helping get their houses together. i mean, anything that you can think of they have done. a phenomenal job. i would urge you to consider contributing to them. >> charity water means a lot to me. 800 million people that drink water that's likely to make them clean. it's a simple thing but changes people's lives. allows people especially girls to go to school rather than hours trekking to get water each day and 100% of the donations fund projects that helped 2.7 million people so far in 20 countries. >> great. there you have our four favorite charities. give to another one or one like it. >>> coming up, the history of america from the pilgrims to the present day. one thing we can always count on, our country to embrace. we're a nation of deadbeats? history buff examines the addiction to debt. how heart warming. that's next in the guest spot. if you are o
surveying the damage from sfr storm sandy. coming up, the people affected, the growing price tag and, of course, the politics.

wins tomorrow it's only because of hurricane sandy. i started to hear republicans say we had the momentum last week and it stalled and the race froze in place. you've looked at numbers closely. is there anything to that argument? >> i think that you can say there's a tick up in obama's standing in the polls since the hurricane. his number rs were on the rise since october. look at the polls in ohio conducted immediately before the hurricane. a wave of them were ahead by 2 to 5 points like they show now, and maybe he's better in the blue states as a result. twhae that wasn't going to decide the election. >> nate, i want to talk about what the electorate is like lick to look like tomorrow night. back in 2008, 74% of the lakt rate was white people. the obama campaign is counting on it at 74% or lower. the romney campaign banks on it at 74% or higher. what do you see? are white folks trends downwards in terms of the overall% of the electorate they make up? what dupree district court for foam night? >> the first thing that's important is whatever the answer is, it doesn't influenc
. one in particular that i should note is that the devastating impact of hurricane sandy is still being felt by families all across new york, new jersey, parts of connecticut. we are very pleased that under the leadership initially of janet napolitano and fema, but now, sean donovan heading up a task force we're focusing not only on recovery but now on rebuilding and making sure those communities come back stronger than ever and people get the help they need. so that will be an important topic because it's really going to be of interagency concern. second thing that we'll be talking about, obviously, when's on the minds of a lot of american families across the country and that's making sure that we get this fiscal cliff dealt with and that middle class taxes don't go up. i already spoke extensively about that today. i'll just repeat. there's no reason why taxes on middle class families should go up. it would be bad for the economy and those families. in fact, it would be bad for the world economy. and so, i think it's very important that we get that resolved and i am very open to a fair
. mayor cuomo opened new york because of sandy to vote anywhere. we didn't have to go home during the day to vote at the polling place. we went to one near work together and it was five minutes. it got us thinking about ways to make voting easier, because our experience was not going to be mirrored around the country for sure. you know, you think about early voting and absentee voting and mailing in your votes. everyone is online. why can't we figure that out? i'm open to all the ideas, but it reminded me of a conversation i recently had with john fund who wrote about these ideas. i wanted to bring some of these items up, because maybe people haven't thought about why we're supposed to all vote on one day at the same time at a specific location. you can make up your own minds, but one reason is voting is sort of a sense of community, it's a communal experience. i kind of like that. two, absentee and early voting apparently doesn't actually increase turnout. if you're a motivated voter you find a way to vote. absentee and early voting favors the biggest bank roll candidate. if you have to
